In this study, the integrated transport analysis suite, TASK3D-a, was developed to enhance the physics understanding and accurate discussion of the Large Helical Device (LHD) experiment toward facilitating transport model validation. Steady-state and dynamic (transient) transport analyses of NBI (neutral-beam-injection)-heated LHD plasmas have been greatly facilitated by this suite. This will increase the predictability of the transport properties of LHD plasmas toward reactor-relevant regimes
